Jun 22, 2023, 2:52 AM
In a stunning move, Disney has announced that they're putting an end to one of the most successful and beloved cinematic franchises of all time - the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Fans around the world are absolutely devastated. But fear not, dear moviegoers, because Disney has an ace up their sleeve - a new franchise that is poised to take the world by storm.
Get ready to say goodbye to Iron Man, Captain America, and all of your favorite Avengers. Say hello to the DuckTales Cinematic Universe!
That's right - Disney is betting it all on a bunch of ducks (and a handful of other anthropomorphic animals) to take the place of the beloved heroes we've known and loved for more than a decade. It's a bold strategy, to say the least, but based on what we've seen from Disney over the years, it just might pay off.
So what kind of movies can we expect from the DuckTales Cinematic Universe? Well, according to Disney's official announcement, they've got the next ten films in the franchise all mapped out. Here's a sneak peek at what's in store:
- DuckTales: The Return of the Beagle Boys - In this action-packed heist movie, Scrooge McDuck and his nephews team up to take down the notorious Beagle Boys, who have returned to wreak havoc on Duckburg.
- Gizmoduck: The Rise of the Robo-Armor - This spinoff film follows the exploits of Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera (aka Gizmoduck) as he dons a new, high-tech armor suit to take on a villainous organization that's threatening all of Duckburg.
- Darkwing Duck: The Terror that Flaps in the Night - Disney's resident superhero/super-ego is finally getting his own movie, and it's going to be a doozy. Darkwing Duck faces off against a mysterious new enemy that has the power to manipulate reality itself.
- Daisy Duck's Day Out - In this lighthearted comedy, Daisy Duck tries to have a relaxing day off, but gets into all kinds of wacky misadventures as she travels through various lands in the Disney universe.
- The Adventures of Webby Vanderquack - It's Webby's turn to shine in this action-packed spy adventure. Webby goes undercover to take down a shadowy organization that's been pulling the strings from behind the scenes in Duckburg.
- The Life and Times of Launchpad McQuack - Disney's most iconic pilot finally gets his own movie! We'll get to see Launchpad's origin story, his various exploits throughout his career, and his ultimate (and hopefully non-fatal) crash landing.
- The Rescue Rangers: The Case of the Missing Statue - Chip and Dale join forces with their intrepid team of animal adventurers to solve a mystery that has plagued the citizens of Duckburg for years - where did that darn statue go?
- The Great Goofini: A High-Flying Adventure - Goofy is having a mid-life crisis, but instead of buying a sports car or joining a gym, he decides to become a high-wire acrobat. What could possibly go wrong?
- The TaleSpin Movie: The Curse of the Lost Treasure - Baloo and the crew of the Sea Duck embark on an epic adventure to find a fabled lost treasure, but they're not the only ones on the hunt. An evil pirate captain is hot on their trail, and he'll stop at nothing to claim the treasure for himself.
- Mickey and Friends: The Search for the Golden Mouse - And finally, in the climactic finale to the DuckTales Cinematic Universe, Mickey and his pals team up to find a powerful artifact that could change the world forever - the Golden Mouse. But they'll have to face off against some of their greatest rivals and enemies along the way.
It's a lot to take in, we know. But as crazy as it sounds, Disney clearly has a lot of faith in their DuckTales Cinematic Universe. And honestly, after watching these concept images, we can't blame them. Who needs the Avengers when you've got a bunch of ducks?
